    I can confirm this. I just got off of a conference call with our corporate security team and they have verified it, and we are now blocking a lot of excel file types at our mail gateways. I'm waiting to hear back from someone at MS.

    Also, many AV vendors already have dats out that detect this. NAI dats 4875 from 6/15/06 detect the issue.

    Trendmicro 2.494 detects the issue. I believe the current signature file is 2.509
